Our match prediction:
Verona hope to repeat the success form their previous visit to Stadio Artemio Franchi, and record only their third victory of the season. Fiorentina suffered a heavy loss against red-hot Roma, which probably means their faint hopes for the title got destroyed. With this defeat, Viola lost their Champions League spot to i Giallorossi, and now they need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible in order to keep track with the top three. It is more than obvious that the Tuscans are absolute favourites in the upcoming clash, since Luigi Delneri’s charges are still to taste victory on their travels this season, and it seems highly unlikely they could arrest the negative away trend in Florence. Paulo Sousa’s side are rather efficient on home soil, so we expect a spectacle for the fans. The prediction is that the hosts will record an important triumph against rock-bottom Hellas Verona.
